I worked extensively on GE Zoneline AZ Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps while a Maintenance Superintendent at a Senior Citizen's Apartment Complex. Not knowing what type of smell to which you are referring, I can assure you that other than "burnt electrical" smells, the only smell that could possibly be produced would be that from within the INDOOR SPACE. Perhaps something has made its way into the INDOOR AIR FILTER? Perhaps that INDOOR AIR FILTER needs to be cleaned. To clean the INDOOR AIR FILTER, simply lift both of the filters from the front cover, take to your clean bath tub. Run EXTREMELY HOT WATER from the back of the filter to the front of the filter. Then, fill your bathtub 1/4 way with EXTREMELY HOT WATER. Add 1 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide and 1 cup of Real Lemon Juice. Set both filters in this solution for 30 minutes; then rinse with clear water. Set filters up to dry for at least 2 hours in the sun or an air breeze. Replace filters into the GE Zoneline.
Also, not knowing how OLD your GE Zoneline system is, the COILS may need to be cleaned. To do this, simply turn OFF your GE Zoneline unit and remove the front COVER of the unit. Next, mix in a spray bottle 4 packets of LEMON flavored KOOL-AID (without SUGAR) and water. Shake well. Spray the INDOOR COILS of your GE Zoneline unit with the entire contents of this mixture. Let set for at least 10 minutes. Then turn your GE Zoneline to the COOL position. The citric acid in the lemon kool-aid will be forced through the coils to continue to remove any dirt, dust, debris and effectively CLEAN those coils. This will also provide you a LEMONLY odor within your room. Simple and cheap.
Simple. Unscrew the front panel and remove the front cover. now its visable of your blower motor. take long toothbrush or tied with a stick, slowly brush your blower teeth. and then keep a news paper covering your indoor and switch on. All the dust will fall down not spread over the room. Refix the front panel and screw again. Don't forget to clean air filter too. Thanks.
these filters can usually be removed and cleaned by carefully sliding it upwards. Some units they just unclip, pop off with a sligh force. However removing the filter will only expose the evaporator, it is MUCH recommended to remove the entire back cover of the unit to gain access to the condenser and clean both of the radiators.
M's Kitty . I can't help you with the remote But I might be aboe to help you with the filter service. If you look behind the front cover you can see the coils with a spong type filter infront of it. You might have to remove the whole cover to get to it and sometimes there is a door of sorts to allow access. shut the unit down and remove the filter and wash it out with warm soapy water and replace it. and restart the unit. and your off and running again.. You should check your filter at least bi weekly unil you see that remains clean and you might get by with a monthly inspection .. Hope this helps .. Let me know have a good day .. Jon
Remove the front of he unit, as if you're going to clean the filter. That will give you access to what you need to clean. Use warm water and dish washing liquid to wipe off the mildew. Rinse with clear water and a sponge, dry thoroughly and replace the filter and the front of the unit.
NOTE: Before attempting any of the above. Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.
We have a FAC127P1A and if you gently pull the lower cover by holding each side where there is an indentation it will lower so you can get to the filter. Then either replace or wash the filter. We have another model, FAA087P7A1, and we were able to pull the cover down and lift up slightly and remove the cover and wash to remove the collection of dust, etc.
On this latter model there is a collection of dust, etc. in the area where the cooling is blown into the room that I would like to know how to remove for cleaning. I feel it is unhealthy the way it is now and would like to clean it before removing for the season. I know I could use q-tips or a small piece of cloth to clean but that is pain staking.
I would try to clean the coils with a paint brush, then i would go to freds walmrt kmart or any other store that sells 30 day filters and buy some. Take it to my aunts house, cut the filter to fit in front of the coils and behind the cover.
It's behind the front grill underneath the vent. Some window A/C you can slide the filter out from the side or the bottom. Some you have to pull the whole front cover out. Some is part of the front grill and is not removable, and can be cleaned out instead of replacing.
I don't know too much about your particular make / model but most window units have a 1 piece front cover which is usually held on to the main cabinet with 1 or 2 screws at the sides and 1 or 2 behind the filter panel. You will need to remove the front panel to remove the vents as they are usually fitted from behind the panel.
